"In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity."

- Archbishop of Split Marco Antonio de Dominis,
in his anti-Papal tract De Repubblica Ecclesiastica (1617),
the earliest known version of this famous quotation.

"For man was created of the dust of the earth, but woman was made of a part of man, after that he was a living soul: yet was she not produced from Adam's foot, to be his too low inferior; nor from his head to be his superior, but from his side, near his heart, to be his equal; that where he is Lord, she may be Lady."

- Rachel Speght, A Mouzell for Melastomus
